The first ever “NYC Fitness Week” will run from June 5—12, and participating gyms throughout the five boroughs are offering buy-one-get-one-free deals to attract new customers.
Founded by Debra Strougo of Fitizens Holdings and Brian Chappon of CENTRED Wellness, the initiative was “born in an effort to give the profoundly disrupted fitness industry and sector the support and awareness needed for a strong recovery from the pandemic.”
Fitness Week is launching in NYC, but Strougo and Chappon are planning similar renditions in Los Angeles, Toronto and beyond.
New Yorkers who’d like to dabble in a new fitness class can browse for gyms at fitness-weeks.com/nyc.
Upper East Side studios offering specials include New York Sports Club (1637 Third Ave and 349 East 76th Street); SLT (177 East 87th Street and 201 East 67th Street); Crunch (1109 Second Ave, 1131 Third Ave and 1438 Third Ave); Pilates Social (1053 Lexington Ave); City Row (1409 Third Ave); Real Pilates (1226 Lexington Ave); Orangetheory (220 East 86th Street); Mile High Run Club (1251 Lexington Ave); and EVF Performance (1623 York Ave).
“Bridging the gap between fitness and business, Debra and Brian set out not only to support the gyms and studios, but also to help New Yorkers to become or to continue being both mentally and physically healthy.”
